Just poured SWMBO a glass of this. It was a big hit!

I believe her exact words were, "You made this?"

Thanks BM!

Just kegged my belgian pale/blonde tonight. Not this same recipe - no wheat, used abbey ale yeast, but its about the same color as Biermunchers and only 25IBU from hallarteau. Can't wait to start drinking this... love belgians... love the estery profile from the yeast... but can't always be drinking tripels and such so this should suit me as a 'session belgian'... Mmm mmm...

I've been looking at that recipe and thinking I need to give it a shot as a great summer beer for SWMBO. (or maybe just something she will actually drink that I made)

Thanks Davey- your post just convinced me.

Update: 3/4 of a pint after a long day and she's napping on the couch. Lightweight!

Make sure you find the happy medium between just enough to get her frisky and sleepy time ......

What if the LHBS doesn't have flaked or torrified wheat? Should I just replace it with a little wheat malt?

Also, which WYeast yeast? 3056 or 3333?

If you have a local organics food store, they may have flaked grains there. I get all my flaked wheat ,barley, and rye from one.

Just moved SWMBO slayer to secondary... I can already tell this is going to be a clear brew, looks great already. Sat in primary for 17 days, like Biermuncher said this thing ferments for awhile (went strong for about 10 days, then bubbled about every 10 seconds or so for another 4).

I backed off slightly on the grain bill, but ended up getting better efficiency then I planned (finally getting my process down). OG was 1.046, with gravity currently sitting at 1.010. A great beer to brew.. easy and cheap!

Will post in a few weeks with pictures... I finally have a backlog of kegs to tap, what a great feeling!
